One of the Holly Block generals Big Kahuna OG and Mutant Academy producer Sycho Sid released their collaborative EP HollyBlockHuna on all streaming platforms. This project was originally on the Mutant Academy Bandcamp page in June 2020, but because it's Block History Month for the collective, they decided to refresh people's knowledge of the Scheme Team with poetic talks from the Scheme Team CEO himself.
The project is narrated by fellow Mutant Academy member Fly Anakin through the twenty-one-minute EP. It starts off with a catchy song Fall Back Pt.2 that begins with a Funk Flex-like bomb drop and only picks up on quality throughout the eight-track journey with guest appearances from rappers like Monday Night, 3Way Slim, and AnkhleJohn. Every track on HollyBlockHuna feels like they should be on movie soundtracks with the high production quality from Sycho Syd. Some of my favorite instrumentals from the EP are Fall Back Pt. 2 and the joyful horns and electronic key-filled production of Cross Country Pimpin' featuring 3Way Slim. Kahuna shines on his scheme talk on Dipset Type Beat featuring AnkhleJohn that fits the style of how Dipset used to put out music in their legendary run.
All I have left to say about the project is, what a way to start off your year. Last year he released two collaborative projects and it's more than certain we'll be getting more content from Big Kahuna OG and the rest of Mutant Academy. You can stream it on Spotify and purchase the project on BandCamp. Follow the duo on Instagram on social media @bigkahunaog and @sychosyd_
